Ambundulando is a research-based project by artist Januário Jano. The exhibition is the result of a method of work developed over the last year and a half, where the artist explores the complexities and idiosyncrasies of the processes of the construction of his own Identity. In recovering practices and rituals typical of the Ambundo ethnic group, from Luanda and surrounding areas, as well as practices and rituals so evident in his own family history, Januário embarks on a process of historical and personal research where the political character of collective memory and the personal character of individual memory intersect, clash and overlap at different times.
